  • Israel 'not ruling out' eventual ties with Syria's Assad

"The IDF targeted three military posts in Syria in response to the infiltration of the Syrian UAV into Israel that was intercepted by the IDF earlier today [on Wednesday]", the tweet reads.

Israel shot down the drone.

Spillover fire from Syria's civil war has occasionally landed in the Israeli-controlled Golan.

The IDF knocked down an enemy drone over the Kinneret on Wednesday, using a Patriot missile.

The Israeli prime minister flew to Moscow yesterday to discuss what President Trump could offer President Putin in return for his help in pushing Iranian forces out of Syria.

Syrian military air defenses have repelled an Israeli attack on the country's Quneitra province, Syrian state media report.


"They are treated in hospital and go back the same day", said Major Sergei Kutikov, an Israeli military health officer.

The incident set off air defense sirens on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and the nearby Jordanian border, the military statement said.

Russian Federation is Assad's big-power backer in the seven-year-old civil war. "I very much appreciate the direct, unmediated and excellent contact that I have with the Russian president".

However, Lieberman appeared to signal acknowledgment that Assad would regain control of the Syrian side of the Golan.

Israel is particularly anxious about the presence of Damascus ally Iran next door in Syria. Netanyahu's government has made clear it would not now cede the Golan and has been lobbying for US recognition of Israel's claim of sovereignty there.

He said the incursion threatened "the safety and security of Israel's northern cities and towns" and added that Israel has "repeatedly warned the Security Council of the destabilizing activities taking place in Syria and the threats they pose to Israel and the Middle East".
